Will the Dallas Cowboys ever break this near-three-decade-long jinx?

This was supposed to be the year the Dallas Cowboys finally got over the hump and proved they were a 'different Cowboys team'. Instead, they did what they always do.

Despite the impressive regular season win-loss total, they only beat three teams with winning records. In the postseason, they were embarrassed AT HOME by the Green Bay Packers in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs.

The positives for Dallas coming out of the 2023 season are as follows. Dak Prescott enjoyed an MVP-level season, his best since 2021. Wide receiver CeeDee Lamb is finally looking like the franchise's number one wide receiver they thought he could be. 

The bad news for Dallas was as follows. Their rushing attack wasn't as scary as it once was. Sure, Tony Pollard exceeded 1,000 yards rushing. it was clear he missed his tag team partner, Ezekiel Elliott. 

Yes, there's more. The contractual needs of Prescott, Lamb, and Micah Parsons must be dealt with. That could have a big effect on this team's offseason. Here's something else no one seems to be asking as much as they should. What will the defense look like following the departure of Dan Quinn? How will they perform?
